HP Pavilion DV7 volume slider not working

Hi

 

Ive had my Pavilion DV7 for 3 months now and everything has been fine. Now the volume slider does not work.

 

It works manually when i use the volume icon (near the date and time toolbar) but cannot understand why the volume slider doesnt work anymore. Could you please help..

 

Thanks

Have you checked for the latest HP Media Smart software from your models driver pages? Try:

 

 ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp46501-47000/sp46762.exe

 

If no joy try a hard reset>>

 

1-remove power cord and battery

2-press power button for 30 seconds

3-reinstall battery and power cord

4-power on

Software update worked! Don't forget to reboot after installing.

Re: HP Pavilion DV7 volume slider not working

Ok, 

 

 

Try to Perform a Hard Reset next :


1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards.


2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 1 minute.


3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (do not connect the battery), press the Power button.

 

 

Also, this Document will help you out with the hard reset.

Re: HP Pavilion DV7 volume slider not working

Ok, try a restore to when the notebook was working fine with the volume sliders.

 

Here is a document showing you how to restore the Notebook.

 

Make sure and at the top select the option that says " Restore Windows to a previous point ".

 

Make sure and backup any files or downloads you have saved recently.

Re: HP Pavilion DV7 volume slider not working

thanks. hard start works like a charm BUT, fix is only temporary. there doesn't seem to be a permanent fix.
